Hello and happy Monday my loves.

Let me say my weekend was bor-ing.

Sorry, no real shenanigans to share.

Why you ask?

Well Saturday I had to work (lame) and Sunday Matt had a dodgeball tournament, which left me home alone all day.

I probably could have been productive and cleaned or something. Maybe even baked. But I had no motivation to clean or bake, or being productive in any sense.  So I guess I am the one to blame for the lack of activities.

But even though my weekend was not the most exciting, I still love to find the small things that can make a day marvelous.

For Matt’s birthday I had purchased him tickets to the LA Galaxy vs. Madrid soccer match. He is obsessed with soccer at the moment, so I thought it would be fun for us to go to a match together. Little did I know what a big deal this match actually was. I guess the LA team is the only US team to participate in this league and the fact that they were even playing in Arizona was a huge deal too. I had to work that day, but left early in what I thought would be enough time to get across town to the stadium. We planned ahead and Matt picked up dinner for me to eat in the car.

Yes I ate sushi in the car, and yes I still used chopsticks.

And yes, I made a huge mess. But it was delicious none the less.

So once we were on our way, we were quickly greeted with ridiculous traffic. Not only was it normal rush hour traffic, but the game was adding additional back up. We were not happy about being stuck in it.

It probably took us double the amount of time it should have, but we finally made it. And after waiting in line for an additional half hour at will call to pick up my tickets, and then the fact that we entered the gate of course on the complete opposite side of the stadium, we finally made it to our seats. But not before grabbing a beer.

We had a great time at the game and I am so glad that Matt was able to finally go to a match and it was just an overall great date night for us.

I had to work the next day (Matt was lucky enough to have the day off) and let me tell you I was exhausted. But sometimes it’s the small things that get me through my day.

Americano’s from Starbucks always help.

And also a delicious breakfast that was prepped the night before so I didn’t have to worry about it in the morning.

OIAJ never lets me down, and when I know I am going to have a rushed morning is a wonderful go to breakfast. I seriously hoard empty jars just for these occasions.

And if a delicious breakfast isn’t enough, tasty new desserts help too.

I finally got a hold of the new white chocolate raspberry QuestBar. I am a fan.

Although I think the chocolate chip cookie dough is still my favorite.

So even though my weekend was a bit dull, there are always ways to find the positives and the little things that make life marvelous.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and can find the small positive moments in your life.

Have a great week loves.
